In an attempt to shove Brenda out of his mind, Sonny kisses Claire. Johnny accuses Dante of again compromising himself to protect Sonny by allowing Johnny to be framed for the murder of Tomas Lopez. Olivia learns of Johnny’s arrest and begs him to give up his vendetta against Sonny. Johnny crosses with Judge Carroll and tells him about the Lopez framing.  He also informs the Judge that Claire Walsh has compromised herself with Sonny as of late.  Judge Carroll swears he’ll have her career and her head on a platter if true. Lucky appeals to Karen as a mother and convinces her to return baby Aiden to his real family.  Lucky delivers the baby back to Liz and Nik. Liz confronts Shirley’s snarky daughter Marny who has arrived to collect her mother’s things. Brook purposefully gets drenched in the rain and arrives shivering at Dante’s. 

Tuesday- Encore Episodes.

Sonny continues to wear down Claire’s defenses while Claire wonders if Sonny has ever truly given his entire heart to a woman.  After Claire leaves, Sonny’s thoughts drift to Brenda. Pretending to counsel her, Carly tells Lulu Dante cannot be trusted because he is Sonny’s son. Showered and in a bathrobe, Brook seductively edges closer to Dante and kisses him. He gently shuts her down just as Michael arrives home. Overprotective about Kristina, Alexis does not want to leave her daughter alone with her new study partner Taylor. Kristina confides in Michael her fears she may be permanently damaged. Lucky confides in Maxie that baby Aiden profoundly affected him, stirring up the honest emotions of wishing the child was his. Lucky and Maxie share a kiss.

Thursday- Brenda puts on a brave face for the press and refuses to lay low despite dangerous threats from the Russian mob.  She remains passionately committed to A.S.E.C. (Alliance to Save Exploited Children) and seeks to use her fame to gain exposure for the cause. After being bailed out by Ethan, Johnny tells of his plan to undercut Sonny. Michael tries to broker a peace deal with Johnny in person, only to be met-by gunfire from a Lopez drive-by shooting. Sam offers Jason a solution to get out of prison. Dante and Lulu talk about marriage. Jason tells Carly to give up her revenge plot, but Carly refuses to stop trying to bring Dante and Lulu down. Lisa threatens Steve with sexual harassment. Patrick finds Lisa has taken up residence in his home while Robin is out of town. Matt warns Maxie not to get too involved with Lucky. Ethan pulls Maya into a passionate kiss.

Friday- Sonny confides in Mike that he can’t stop thinking about Brenda. In Rome, Brenda becomes haunted by thoughts of her past with Sonny before she is whisked away for an exciting night with international movie star Murphy Sinclair. Sonny decides to test Claire’s loyalty, asking her to get Jason released from prison.  Claire answers Sonny’s test with a legal loophole permitting the release of Jason Morgan from prison. After Michael saves Johnny from the drive-by shooting, Dante, Johnny and Ethan all lie to the police to cover up Michael’s involvement. Johnny focuses on wiping out Sonny for good. Lulu lets Dante squirm under pressure of the marriage question, but he is saved by a cell phone call from PCPD regarding the drive-by shooting. Patrick fails to get Lisa to leave his home despite his clear requests for her to do so.  Aware something is very wrong, Maxie helps Patrick drive Lisa out of the house.
